With tires are contributing an increasingly larger share of vehicle life cycle costs for trucking fleets, many companies are looking for ways to mitigate the impact of escalating prices. K-Line Industries introduces a simple-to-use, economical Tire Runout Gauge that measures both radial and lateral tire runout conditions. The use of this tool can help eliminate irregular tire wear and ride vibration while also lengthening the life of tires, says K-Line. Any facility responsible for maintaining a tire program will benefit from having a K-Line Tire Runout Gauge in their shop inventory.
K-Line's Tire Runout Gauge utilizes a roller wheel placed against the tire tread. This combines with a gauge bar, individual low and high spot sliders, and magnified measurement readout to quickly show the amount of runout present. If the runout exceeds the stated limits, a check can be made and repairs completed.
Regular use of K-Line's Tire Runout Gauge is an excellent preventive maintenance practice that can help increase the value of tire dollars spent by quickly identifying out of balance conditions that lead to early tire removals and driver discomfort.
